Possible Interaction: Fluorides and Methoxyflurane



Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

The most important difference observed between the two groups was the significantly elevated blood level of inorganic fluoride found postoperatively in the methoxyflurane-treated patients.

Although both sevoflurane and methoxyflurane may produce plasma fluoride concentrations in excess of 50 microM, they have not produced the same nephrotoxic effects.

Renal damage due to methoxyflurane may be caused by F- which is released during its biotransformation while, in the group of halogenated inhalation anesthetics, only chloroform is a true hepatotoxic substance.

In a study of 47 patients exposed to methoxyflurane a significant correlation was found between the dose of methoxyflurane and the urine fluoride concentration on the first and second days after exposure.

Consequently, the area under the fluoride curve is much greater after methoxyflurane anaesthesia than after either enflurane or isoflurane.
Peak fluoride levels also are considerably higher after methoxyflurane anaesthesia than after administration of the other two agents.

The studies lend support to the contention that the concentrating defect associated with methoxyflurane may be due to inorganic fluoride , but do not prove such a relationship.

These studies indicate that inorganic fluoride is responsible for the acute polyuric renal lesion which occurs after methoxyflurane administration.

It is concluded that there is variation in the rate of metabolism of methoxyflurane to inorganic fluoride and in its nephrotoxic effects among various rat strains.
